The Fake Email Message
Re Hello Dear
From: Christiel tenedja
My name is Mrs Christiel tenedja From South Africa I am married to Dr.tenedja who worked with our Embassy in Ivory Coast Cote D'ivoire for a period of 8 years before he died. We were marriedfor 12 years without a child before he died after a brief illness. Since his death I decided not to marry again When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US$23Million with a Bank in Cote D'ivoire. Presently this money is still in the custody of the Bank in Cote D'ivoire. Recently my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Four months due to cancer illness.
Having known my condition I decided to donate this money to churchs, organisation or good person that will utilise this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want you to use this money for churchs, Charity organisation, orphanages, widows and other people that are in need. l took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money Moreover my husband relatives are not close to me since I devolop a Cancer problem and it hard been that they wish to see me dead in order to inherit this wealth since we have no Child. These people are not worthy of this inheritance. This is why I am taking this decision.
As soon as I receive your reply I will give you the contact of the Bank in Cote d'ivoire where this money is deposited. I will also issue a letter of authorisation to the bank that will prove you the present beneficiary of this money. I also want you to always put me in prayer.30% of the total money will go for your own use with your family including the transfer expensese which you have to take care of while the rest of 70% will go as i started,Please assure me that you will act accordinto my instructions,Hoping to receive your response soonest.
Thanks and Remain blessed.
Yours sister in the Lord
